April 26: Run for Every Mother Counts
Did you know that every day 800 women die during childbirth? And even more shocking, 98% of these deaths are preventable. Every Mother Counts founder, Christy Turlington Burns, will be running the Virgin Money London Marathon to raise awareness about the fact that thousands of women and girls still live too far from the care and supplies needed for safe motherhood. Follow her inspiring journey to London here. We want to support her and Every Mother Counts as they strive to make change so every woman has the chance to bring life into this world safely.
On April 26th when Christy toes the line in London, join her by logging into Charity Miles and running (or walking) for Every Mother Counts. Last year we reached our goal of 1,000 miles in one day. This year, we're raising the stakes. Our goal is 1,500 miles. And with your help, we know we can hit it!
